Thanksgiving prayer ushers in the New Year

The year 2009, by all accounts, was quite eventful. It had its historical moments, its fair share of events which we wished would forever remain in our memory and others we wished never happened.

To make the New Year happier, staff and children from SOS Children’s Village gathered at family house number 7 for prayers and thanksgiving. Led by the village director, Mr. Peter Mungai, the bygone year was bid farewell and the New Year embraced with prayers. The prayers were led by the assistant parish priest from Kapsoya Catholic Church. Children and youth participated fully in the liturgical activities. In other words, it was the kind of get together function for all children, youth and staff, to give a warm welcome to the coming year. The whole place was full of enjoyment and fun as the SOS family joined together in a festive food, singing and dancing.

It was a good way to start the New Year and a welcoming break from the political upheaval that characterized the previous two years. We look forward to a very good year.
